Case 1737/1740 Uni-Loader-Evolutionary Design 720790
Evolutionary design may be defined as up-grading an existing design to improve marketability, while still retaining fixed parameters of cost, weight, size, and related attributes. When the project involves an already well-designed and acceptable product, then further evolution of the design requires some novel approaches. This paper discusses the evolutionary design of compact skid-steer loaders. Powerplant, loader efficiency, service and parking brakes, and service accessibility are covered.
